High Vacuum Silicon Removal from Titanium

Q. I have two questions. 1) How does Titanium react with Alconox®? And 2) How does Liquinox® clean Silicon Oils? If possible, I would like to have one type of cleaning solution. If not possible, then we will us what is necessary. We clean 304 STL, OFHC Copper, Alumina Ceramic, & Titanium. All will be cleaned for ultra high vacuum service like the rest of our parts.

Aluminum Plate Cleaning

Solujet Inhibited for Cleaning Aluminum

Q. Specifications indicate that “Solujet is inhibited for Aluminum. Corrosion testing is advisable.” What does this mean?

A. Solujet contains sodium metasilicate which acts as a corrosion inhibitor to stop alkaline attack on aluminum. Solujet would not cause alkaline attack on aluminum as long as the bath is not overused and the metasilicate depleted. Learn more.

Stripping Silicone Coating

Q. I need to strip a silicon coating from a small coaxial cable. We currently use a heated ultrasonic cleaner with about 1.5 gallon reservoir with Dynasol as the solvent. We need an explosion proof heated ultrasonic cleaner or a recommendation.

Detergent to Break Down Biofilm

High concentrations of bleach and H2O2 are breaking down PVC pipe and plastic containers causing contamination of a nutrient solution. I need a cleaner that breaks down biofilm and a cleaner that cleans nutrient salts. I can sterilize with H2O2 using a much lower concentration at the end of process.

Developing Sustainable Cleaning Processes

We applaud you for looking to employ sustainable, safe, clean, and reduced waste cleaning processes. The first step in evaluating the environmental health and safety of an aqueous cleaner is to secure the material safety data sheet and technical bulletins for the cleaners you plan to test or use, and to assemble as much information as you can about the soils you will be removing. A review of this information should disclose important environmental and health hazards as well as regulations.

Rust Free Cleaning of Component Leads & Boards

Q. Our current cleaning process has a tendency to leave spots on board and component leads. Analysis of the white spots shows oxides of tin and lead; rust-colored spots show iron oxide. FTIR analysis shows no organic content, so it’s not soap, flux, etc. I have recommended that the production people use appropriate Alconox Inc. cleaner or possibly DI water only for a very short cleaning cycle, and that they dry the boards promptly in flowing warm air. Rust is coming from tinned steel component leads. C
